25 Watts is a great film that depicts a day in the life of three friends
23 April 2001 | by (Montevideo, Uruguay) – See all my reviews

Saturday, early in the morning. Leche, Javi and Seba wander around the neighborhood with nothing much to do. They drink beer, smoke, talk about girls. 25 watts shows us a day in the life of these three young inhabitants of Montevideo. They spend the day trying to escape from boredom, facing the twists and turns of love, interacting with friends and other picturesque characters from the "barrio" that share moments with them. So we get to see a paranoid delivery man, a weird video club owner among other strange and funny characters. The acting is very good, all the cast. This film was shot in b&w 16mm and then blown up to 35mm. It has a grainy look, which adds certain raw atmosphere to it. It is Stoll and Rebella's first feature film.

Certainly, one you should check out.
